You want your resume reader to see the key words that really paint a picture of you. If it’s a verb, fine; but it doesn’t have to be. You must therefore ask yourself is, “If there is ONE word in this item that I want my reader to see FIRST, what is that word?” That’s the word that should begin the item. You then find a way to write the rest of the item, starting with that key word. And, yes, it might be a verb, but it doesn’t have to be – it could be a noun, or a name, or even a number. The first word may not always be what you think, and selecting the best first word depends on what one wants to emphasize.
